Quinoa in Santa Fe, Taos, Albuquerque?

Does anyone know of any restaurants in these cities that offer dishes (mains or sides) that include quinoa? I've had a red quinoa tamale at Corn Maiden at Tamaya, and my brother told me there used to be a quinoa dish at Cafe Pasqual, but I looked at the menu and it seems to no longer be offered.

if you've seen or tasted interesting quinoa dishes recently, please share!

    You came to the right place, JessicaSophia.

    Standard Diner in Albuquerque has a quinoa stuffed acorn squash
    The deli at La Montanita Food Co-op in Albuquerque always has some quinoa dish
    Kelly's Brew Pub (also in Abq) has a quinoa chicken wrap
    Annapurna's (Abq) has both a quinoa pilaf type of thing and a breakfast quinoa with raisins and stuff. (Have to say, I've alway been disappointed in Annapurna's food, though)
    Fuego Restaurant at La Posada de Santa Fe - quinoa cakes
    SantaCafe and El Patio in Santa Fe both serve their chile relleno with a mushroom quinoa
    Dragonfly Cafe & Bakery in Taos - Mediterranean-style quinoa salad
